The Loco Moco Legend
The Hawaiian legend of loco moco originates from the 1940s in the town of Hilo, Hawaii. It is believed to have been invented by a local restaurant called Lincoln Grill. The dish was created as a quick, inexpensive meal for local teens who would go to the restaurant after school. The loco moco legend has since spread worldwide and has become a very important Hawaiian dish. It typically consists of a bed of white rice, a hamburger patty, a fried egg and a rich brown gravy.
